Wow, Harold. I hadn't heard this yet.
I liked him as Seth Rogen's father in Knocked Up. It seemed the fitting part for the characters we associate them with.

Yes, it's sad news. "Stripes" is my favorite movie of his.

Yes, Egon is gone... We just watched Stripes yesterday. I am saddened, he was two years older than Shrek.

American Hustle - wasn't sure I was going to enjoy it after the first ten minutes, but it turned out to be a very good film. Christian Bale is the man! Also watched Wolf of Wall Street a few weeks ago - great film!

While I can now mathematically prove there is no greatest integer I wasn't aware one could be older than Shrek.

Think of the age of dirt and subtract ten years...

roadfix----- have you seen the original House of Cards (Masterpiece) and if you have did you think this version was better or worse than it?

That's a trick question, sort of, because I really want to know but after watching the original this new one paled. I love Kevin Spacey and he did do a good job---- but the story just wasn't the same.

But I'll watch it when it comes out on DVD and probably b***h the whole time.

Mysterious Creatures, starring Brenda Blethyn and Timothy Spall, two fine actors. No matter how bad the day has been, theirs was worse. Based on fact. Maybe a Harold Ramis comedy could lift the pall.

No, I never saw the original series. That's probably a good thing as I have nothing to compare this series to. :)
